I still have to make and fit a sleeve mockup, but since I'll always put off sleeves as long as I possibly can, I'm working on the trim now.
So far I've only got it sewn to the bottom edge of the spencer, but, you know, better than nothing, right?
|Dangly pompom bits. Hee.|
It was a bit of a process, getting the trim to behave like respectable 19th-century pompom trim - as much as polyester home dec trim from Joann's can be said to behave respectably.
|This is just NOT the effect I'm going for! Hm.|
I don't want freewheeling pompom escapees! So - snip, snip, carefully pull, stitch stitch stitch, repeat repeat repeat!
Feel free to kick me if I don't have a finished spencer next week, though. I mean, let's get crackin', here!
